linear cross overs
The warm up used to develop elite level cross overs.
WHAT IS YOUR STRIDE TO CROSSOVER RATIO?
The PEP Reactive Linear Crossover circuit (1 of more than 50 circuits) was created to develop elite level Linear Crossovers as it ‘forces’ the skater to develop a low stride to crossover ratio. The top 25 NHL players crossover once every 4 strides, compared to once every 12-14 strides for the average third or fourth line NHLer (‘Crossovers Set Crosby and McDavid Apart’ – TSN article by Frank Seravalli).
This on-the-rush circuit is set up from the circle dot (inside the zone), down the ice to the top of the circle (in the other zone, Approx. 96-100 feet).
What is it that enables Connor to accelerate on the rush, accelerate out of the corners and the straight-a-ways, weaving in and out of high traffic without losing forward momentum? Traditionally, isolated crossover drills offer zero resistance and require no multi-tasking skills. The PEP Reactive Linear Crossover Circuit develops GREATER PERFORMANCE and elite puck placement skill.
REACTIVE LINEAR CROSSOVERS ENABLE YOU TO DEVELOP MORE POWERFUL STRIDE AND SPEED
- Connor’s stride to crossover ratio (1-2) is the top in the NHL, along with his explosive crossover speed and agility.
- The Reactive Linear Crossover™ Training is the path to elite stride and crossover development.
- Proven training methods focusing on high speed change of direction, explosive acceleration, Upper body positioning /timing and Inside and Outside “Edge Power.”
